Anthony Haynes, of Shackleton Road, and Annemarie Haynes, of Old Foundry Road, were arrested after an outbreak of violence at the Chema Pizza takeaway in Queen Way, which began at 11pm on October 18 last year.

At their Ipswich Crown Court sentencing, prosecutor Andrew Shaw said an argument started outside the fast food outlet between Miss Haynes, 19, and a man waiting to pick his daughter up from work.

The shop's owner Yusef Erdal went out to keep the peace, but when he went back inside a group of people who had gathered outside, came into his premises.

Many did not want food and he asked them to leave. Mr Erdal's wife Besey, was at the door to ensure they did not return, when Miss Haynes tried to push her way inside and a struggled ensued.

Mr Erdal kicked Miss Haynes in the leg to protect his wife. A three-way struggle began and blows were exchanged.
